February 21, 2021
Welcome to this week’s update at Lamgo Farms! As many of you have noticed, I am extremely late with posting this week due to our Winter storm. So late that I think I’m actually now on time for next week’s update. I’m excited you have found your way to see just what is happening on the farm this week. Let’s get into it!
Due to the lateness of this post, I will not be updating again until March 3rd.
Well, wow, we made it through the storm! So many of you were right here with us in the cold, dark and daunting. I trust you have power, water, food and will be able to rest soon.
The emotional and physical toll carrying a farm, business, and children through this has certainly shown up this weekend. Thank you all for the sweet notes of encouragement and prayers. Thank you for extending me much needed grace to recover and postpone communication for a few days.
Our water was off and on and although our lights flickered a bit, we never lost power. Internet was down and now the task of finding food has begun.
I learned during those first months of quarantine that our large family requires multiple grocery pick up orders from multiple stores in order to simply feed us for a few days. Our local Kroger does have food but is rationing.
We are so very thankful to have chickens that give us daily eggs. And my flour and yeast stocks are allowing me to make plenty of bread to supplement what we cannot get right now.
As far as the puppies and farm. . .they are all doing well. Before losing water we were able to fill up 12, 5 gallon jugs full of tap water in the bathtub which allowed us to water the horses, ducks, chickens and dogs. We also were able to use this water to clean after the dogs. We simply gathered snow in buckets and brought them in to flush toilets.
I basically told everyone to use the master bathroom toilet as it only required 1 gal of water to flush. LOL! Things got real with a family of 10.
We had plenty of hay with the horses in the barn. The chicken and duck coops were nicely heated with hay and heat lamps. We did not lose any animals during this cold snap.
Yesterday I was able to get a hot shower. It was heavenly.
Life is moving on as it should. We are praying for those who are still suffering and for those who have experienced great loss. I know we are all so very weary right now. My heart goes out to all of you.
Ok, time for some puppy news. Let’s have some fluffy therapy shall we?
It is possible during all of this that a few dogs missed cycles. I’m referring to Parker in particular. We will be watching her closely. Good news. . .Lina is now in the breeding process. We are looking forward to her large Standard Sheepadoodles!
Prenatal Ultrasounds were postponed and will be conducted tomorrow! I’ll let you all know how they go.
I was only able to answer a handful of emails today but will keep after it until you all hear back from me. Right now as you can see our picking spots are mostly reserved for 2021. We are holding wait lists in case we have more puppies born than expected or if we have spots open up due to cancellations or people double listed (holding a spot on more than one litter).
I know many have asked about our 2022 lists. I’m so sorry but that is just too far ahead right now for our current load and my brain to handle. To help facilitate our lists better in the upcoming years, I have decided to move to a master list instead of holding individual lists.
Basically, I will have a red mini list, a cream/apricot mini list, red petite list, cream/apricot petite list, etc. Based on your preferences, you will be placed on a master list (you can be on 2 lists at one time). This will hold your place in order. You may request certain breeding parents. Once I start the 2022 individual lists, I will move each person to the list that matches their preferences and requests. I will coordinate this with each owner to make sure you are right where you wish to be.
I’m hoping this will help with my keeping track of lists so far in advance as well as making sure no one slips through the cracks.
Ok, let’s scroll on down to see just what is happening in each of the litters this week. Take care everyone!
Here is what we have now
and what is coming up soon.
Scroll down to the FAQ section to see how to place a deposit, pricing, how to reserve a puppy and to answer many questions.

Look at these babies! They are all growing and those little personalities are shining through. Right now they are on solid kibble and are spending more play time away from mama. We will begin fully weaning this weekend. Puppy picking is already this week!!! Can you believe that? Temperament testing results will be emailed on Wednesday and puppy picking is on Friday, Feb 26th. Each of you should have received puppy picking instructions and those coming to pick up your puppies should have received directions to the farm. Please let me know if you did not receive these.
What Happens Next:
Week 5: Temperament testing will be conducted.
Week 6: Temperament testing results will be emailed the Wednesday prior to picking.

We expect both a pocket range of 10-15 lbs and petite range of 16-18 lbs. (Cream, Apricot, and red coloring in both curly and wavy coats. The majority are curly).
- waitlist: Bigham, Vinson, Horton, Gaboriau
Past Sanjay Puppies. . .watch them grow
Maybelline / Beans F1b Petite Labradoodles
Due to the weather we had to postpone Maybelline’s ultrasound. It is scheduled for Monday. I’ll keep you posted as soon as we have answers. If breeding was successful, she would be due around March 22nd which would give us puppies going home the middle of May.
( black, red and apricot) Wavy thinner more wire coats.
Poppins / Banks F1 Moyen Sheepadoodles
Poppins has now completed the breeding process. Puppies should be due around the end of March with puppies going home around mid to late May. Due to the weather her prenatal ultrasound has been scheduled for tomorrow (Monday). I will let you know as soon as are done.
These puppiese are more of a medium size vs our Lina Standards. They are black and white with some having black and white faces and others having black faces with a black and white body. They are mostly wavy with some curly. These babies mature between 45-55 lbs. We have had a few mature at 60 lbs. We are generally able to pick out those that will be larger around 5 weeks old.
Pictures coming soon!
Emerald / Paddington
F2bb Mini Goldendoodles
Litter Reserved with a waitlist
Emerald has completed the breeding process. We will confirm pregnancy via ultrasound after the first of March.
Emerald is the daughter of Cheyenne and Duke. Cheyenne is a red and Duke is white. Puppies will have both curly and wavy coats much like our Famous Duke/Daphne F2b past litters. These will mature around 25-35 lbs. Colors will be like our Charmin or Sammy match ups. They will be cream, apricot and a peanut butter color.
Emerald is in the breeding process. Once completed we will wait 3 weeks to confirm pregnancy. If successful, puppies would go home around early to mid June.
This is a first time breeding so we do not have past puppy pictures for this litter, but because we have been breeding these lines for some time and have been matching these colors and coat types, we have a great idea what they will look like.
Below are pictures of some of Sammy and Charmin’s puppies (both Sammy and Charmin are Duke puppies as well and resemble Emerald) for reference.
We also do not have a past litter size to indicate how many picking spots we can reserve, therefore, we will open up 6 spots and then hold a wait list to be on the safe side. Deposits will be accepted once pregnancy is confirmed.
- Waitlist: Spruill, Douma, Lovell
Snowflake / Burton
F1 English Creme Mini Goldendoodles
Snowflake’s next breeding cycle is scheduled for April 2021(cream, peanut butter) Wavy coats. Deposits will be accepted after pregnancy confirmation.

These puppies mature between 20-30 lbs. This breeding is scheduled for August 2021 which would give us puppies going home in December 2021. Charmin delivered 9 puppies in her last litter.

Past puppy pictures coming.
- Saletan- double listed
- Rothstein- double listed
- Waitlist: Lovell
As you can see, we normally have the same schedule each year. Our dogs typically breed every other cycle. However, sometimes cycles run early or late so this can alter our schedule. Occasionally we will do a back to back breeding and then rest our mama a little longer. It all depends on our mama’s, their health, and our schedule.
The end of our 2021 season will consist of another Jasmine Petite red litter (first 3 spots reserved), Ethel mini Double doodle litter, Ruby English Sheepie Doodle litter and another Parker Pocket litter 2021(all picking spots reserved. Parker was suppose to cycle at the end of January. At this time we are just waiting. If she had a missed cycle then the next one would be in June. Unfortunately Parker’s cycles are not the same length as our larger doodles, therefore we will watch her carefully between now and June. We have reserved the first spot in her 2021/22 breeding as well.)
What breedings to you have coming up? Please scroll back Up for current and upcoming litters (scroll down for more future litters) to the “Next Season’s Breeding Schedule” to see what will be bred and what picking spots are open.
How do I know if you have any open picking spots in a particular litter? Scroll until you see your desired litter. Any available picking spots will be listed as “open.”
How do I reserve a picking spot? Complete the contact form located at the end of each litter. Then make your deposit payment by choosing the PUPPY DEPOSIT button under the litter in which you wish to reserve your picking spot. For litters not yet listed please Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “deposit” in the subject line. Note which litter and number on the picking spot you prefer that is listed as open. Include your name, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have for your puppy.
Are Deposits refundable? Unfortunately, due to the high demand of our puppies, we no longer refund deposits for any reason. If for some reason we do not have enough puppies born to provide for every owner- your deposit can be transferred to your next desired litter. The $250 is a picking spot reservation. This also helps us weed out those who are not serious about taking home one of our puppies.
Do you have any paperwork we need to complete? Since our puppies are Reserved almost a year in advance- we will spend that time getting to know each of you and will be offering the proper education to make sure you are fully prepared to bring home your puppy. When placing a deposit, please include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number and any preferences you may have. Once you place your deposit, I will email you your purchase contract which also serves as your receipt. You will need to sign and email this back to me. You will also receive a suggested supply list as well as our Health Warranty. The Health Warranty is not due back until 30 days after you take your puppy home.
Do you choose the puppy for us or can we choose our own puppy? *** COVID-19: All pickings will be conducted virtually at this time. You will be asked to visit the Farm at your puppy picking appointment and will be given an hour to choose your puppy. The choice is yours. Please understand that we cannot guarantee gender availability. When it comes to our donated therapy/service dogs, we will choose the top two for you and then you can make your choice out of those.
Can we visit Lamgo Farms for allergy testing or just to see the dogs? *** COVID-19: All pickings will be conducted virtually at this time. Every puppy owner that has placed a deposit is invited to the farm between weeks 5 and 6 for a puppy picking appointment. If unable to attend- we can send extra video and pictures or FaceTime the appointment. Unfortunately- we do not allow other visitors due to the health risk for our puppies and dogs as well as for the safety of our family. If you wish to have allergy testing- it’s best to find a doodle owner and see if you can tolerate that particular generation of doodle. We have several pictures, video as well as slide shows showing our grounds, parents and past puppies. You may also visit our Facebook page and join our open forum to communicate with any of our past owners about their experience with Lamgo Farms. We welcome your questions!
Do you do temperament testing? Yes, all puppies are tested at week 5 and the results are emailed prior to your puppy picking appointment.
Do you take weekly pictures of your puppies? Yes, The first week is simply a group photo but individual pictures are taken weekly starting at week 2. Video is taken weekly starting at week 3 and concludes at week 7.
Are your puppies socialized? Yes! We now have 8 children. Ages 24, 20, 18, 16, 12, 4, 3 and 2 yrs old. We homeschool and are able to hold, socialize using sensory stimulation as well as play with and cuddle your puppy several times a day which prepares them for any home environment.
When do the puppies come home? Puppies are ready to go home on the Saturday between weeks 7 and 8.
Do you have a Health Warranty? Yes, Lamgo Farms has a 1 year warranty over hips and eyes.
Do you Health Test your Breeding dogs? Some are OFA tested but not all. After consulting an Animal Orthopedic doctor- we learned that these tests do not offer the assurance that puppies will not have hip issues. A good line of breeding stock along with cross breeding and proper care of the puppy will protect and prevent hip issues.
Do you allow boarding after the release date of the puppy? Unfortunately, we are unable to keep your puppy past the pick up date. You will be notified within 24 hours after the birth as to your picking appointment time as well as puppy pick up date/time/information. This will allow you at least 7 weeks to make pick up arrangements. Pick up is on a Saturday a 10 am. We do sometimes offer a Friday pick up by appointment. Lamgo Farms is closed on Sundays and cannot do picking appointments or pick up appointments at that time.
Do you fly puppies out of state? At this time, we only fly pet cargo during the months of November through May. Our summer months are too hot to fly. Flying is an additional $450. We use both Flight Nannies (for dogs that stand no taller than 11 inches) and pet cargo flights. We can fly during the off season with Flight Nannies only.
What is included in the price of the puppy? An awesome Lamgo Farms PUPPY. . . complete puppy packet: First set of shots, Crate, potty training bells, nutritional supplement, toys, treats, scented blanket from littermates, training material, folder with health records, Vet check prior to going home, pedigree, etc, emailed photo collage of your puppy as well as a 10 lb bucket of premium puppy food that will last a few months.

Do you offer discounts: Yes, we offer a $150 discount for our Military owners. Verification of service is required. Once a year we also offer donation dogs for those medically requiring therapy or service dogs. Please email me your circumstance and we will pray and ask God for the answer. We have a medical form that needs to be completed by a doctor to qualify for service needs.
Do you have a Spay/Neuter clause? Yes. All of our puppies are sold with our contract stating all males must be neutered before 5 months old and females must be spayed before 6 months old. We no longer sell for breeding purposes. Breeding a Lamgo Farms’ puppy will result in a fine. We are pro-breeding and we support many other breeders, we just do not sell for that purpose especially for those who intend to breed for hobby of for just the experience of having a litter. Puppies not fixed by the requested time frames will void the Health Warranty.
What sets Lamgo Farms apart from other Goldendoodle breeders? First, having 17 years experience in breeding Goldendoodles- we have learned quite a bit about what to breed to create the perfect doodle for every coat type and personality desired as well as our dedication to each litter. Living on a farm and homeschooling allows us to constantly lay hands on the puppies and give them the ultimate care they need and you desire in a breeder. We care greatly for our puppies, mom and daddy dogs and owners and strive to give that personal touch to every one and puppy that comes our way. We also trust God to give us the perfect puppy you desire. We pray over every breeding and puppy and are genuinely blessed with the ability to raise these fluffy friends.
Pictures and Video: When we do have puppies. . .Pictures will be uploaded on our Facebook page. Video will be located on our Youtube channel at Happenings at lamgo Farms. Weekly pictures will start at week 2 and Video will start to be taken when puppies are three weeks old.
